Engineering excellence for the public good

Strategic Plan 2021-2026

Creating a healthier and more just world through our work

Researchers at the Lutz Lab work to develop an at-home COVID-19 test in 2020

We are committed to making the world a better place by producing the highest-quality graduates and research and engaging our community. We will augment our relationship with the health sciences to accelerate health-care solutions. We will distinguish ourselves from other engineering schools by focusing on high-impact interdisciplinary research and incentivizing collaborations that serve the public good.

To create a healthier and more just world, we will:


Ground our curriculum in technical excellence, a commitment to the public good, and the translation of discoveries into real-world applications


Distinguish the College by focusing on high-impact, large-scale, interdisciplinary research centered on the public good


Augment the College’s relationships across the health sciences to accelerate solutions to critical health-care issues


Encourage and incentivize collaborations and partnerships that serve the public good
